Air Jordan Flipsyde (Flipside) Jordan Brands First Skate Shoe

Michael Jordan has taught us many things over the years, but one thing that always lingers is you have to try hard and work hard to become the best at anything. Jordan Brand is taking a new step to revolutionize the sneaker world, by issuing the first ever Air Jordan Skate shoe.

We have heard rumors about this, and then put to rest when Gentry Humphrey talked about this sneaker in a youtube video, but now we present you pictures, these three colorways are in fact the Air Jordan Flipsyde or Flipside.

Like many Skate Shoes, the Air Jordan Flipsyde features a thick sole and outsole, padded liner for those hard to land kick flips, and a padded tongue. The three color ways pictured are Light Graphite / Varsity Maize-Black, Black / Dark Charcoal, and Black / White – Varsity Red.

The first pair is scheduled to release is July 2008, and expect a load of color schemes to drop, which we will update you with a exact release date. Big thanks to our good friend Jason.

  1. they aight could be better…. killed the basketball shoe game so no other place to go but skate shoes i guess, should get better wit time though…..

  2. fuck that these shits is nice.if you skate, and you dont give fuck about that poser shit, you cant do nothing but like them.plus their team is goona be crazy.Stevie Williams. NIGGA WHAT!!?

  3. Keep in mind that the first JB releases were absolutely horrid in design and craftsmanship. They'll get there in the skate world!

  4. They look alright. Need better shots of them from the side or something. And what is that lasered on the toebox?

  5. let's be honest… i'm ignoring the fact that it's a 'skate' shoe. That blacked out joint in the middle is pretty nice. It has a classic look which is what i fukks with. I very rarely dickride any NEW product. But honestly, I might grab up those jet black shitz. I don't like the jumpman symbol on the midsole, and the symbol on the heel is kinda wack too. But these things surprised me… I thought they would be HORRIBLE. Ima have to see these in person. The materials look good (imo)

  6. fuck that…JB'd be stupid not to jump the skate market…you know they're gonna make an AJ4 skate shoe…

  7. not great! I thought stevie williams was with Reebok.

    Jordan brand imo is falling! they just rehash the same stuff!

  8. no no just make retros you can make a few more fusions cuz people love em so muvh not me an the cool grey spizikes release those an thats it

  9. That was actualy my idea for the Future SOle compotion and they stole it and just murdured the design

  10. i dont get it…skate shoes…so uhhh how much is it gonna cost…it should be like 60 to 70 bucks for these..cuz if i was skate boarder i wouldnt want 2 skate on these if it was the price of any other jordans n plus hearing a jordan skate shoe doesnt feel right to skate on them but jus for going out i guess..im confused T_T

  11. I'd skate in them.If they got zoom air i'll cop,but I don't see Jordan SB's going very far unless black people start skating more.

  12. these are hideous.

    jordan brand needs to keep its greasy paws away from the sb market.

    stick to designing good looking bball shoes, and not put out this flipside, XX3, braggin' rights, ol'school garbage.

    you herd.

  13. im finaly inspired to skate again, if you all are lookin for stylish skate shoes then go get some sb dunks or something just dont dis this shit cuz they look exactly like what theyre made for

  14. this better be the only skate shoes. theres no reason they should kill a basketball shoe brand. i mean do you see DC making b-ball shoes. nike is a whole nother story cuz theyre not only meant for ballin they just make good basketball shoes. but air jordan represents the greatest BASKETBALL player in the history not skater.

  15. why do they have a jumpman on them..y not a skateman??….JB if u steal my idea im coming for 300 percent

  16. Noooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jordan Brand crossed the line with these abominations. These will be the new joke of skating

  17. they aiight they not as bad as yall makin em seem but they could be better and it is kinda confusin to say Jordan and Skate shoe in tha same sentence

  18. Ang PangiT naman nito!!! Sobrang Pangit!!!! Ano yan Air Jordan Na pang skate board!!! BADUY!!! pang mga bading!!! parang mukhang AF1. Basta!!! ang pangit talaga!!!

  19. wow…this is really gay….this is how you can tell that jordan is a complete a sellout and is really desperate for money…JB switching to skateshoes from basketball sneaks is like a brand like…vans lets say, switching over to basketball shoes or running shoes or something gay…you jordan dickriders saying that you will actually pay for this bullshit are just….stupid and your completely overlooking this…

    and this is exactly why i lost respect for the jordan brand..

  20. These are a good start to his skating shoe line. They are not the best, but they are FAR from worse. I would like to see better and more clear pics and also different colors. I rate the 3 out of 5 stars. Hopefully they perform better than they look and I hope they are very comfy.

  21. Once again a shitty ass shoe. JB is NOT for skaters. Leave the skating shoes 2 SB's.

    Man I hate Gentry. He's horrible.

  22. people who say hes a sell out and who ever sines with hims a sell out is just gay how is it bein a sell out? its a oppurtunity to work with a great people need to stop hatin cuz half of u dum,ba asses are gonna either changer ur mind about or copp em.

  23. DAMN MAN EVERY JORDAN SHOE AINT GO LOOK LIKE NO RETRO CUZZ DAT WAT YALL WONT IT 2 BE…DES SHOES THROWED AND HALVES OF YALL GO COP AND DONT EVEN KNO HOW 2 SKATE

  24. IM SORRY BUT MANYE IMA SK8BOARDER && THESE SHYTz ARE DUMB..[[NOT REALLY]]..MAYNE I KNO THA PRICES ARE GONE BE HIGH && SHYT….B'CUZ SK8 SHOEz COST FUCKIN 60 BUCKz THA ONLY THING THATz HIGH ARE NIKE SB SHOE..[[70-90$]]..IM JUST MAD BECUASE HE WASTIN HIS TIME [[BUT]] I WOULD'NT BE TRIPPIN IF I GOT EM FOR FREE….SO YU KNO HOW THAT GO

  25. they don't look all that ugly. i've certainly seen worse looking skate shoes, and MUCH WORSE looking jordans. but the AJF3 fusions are the only shoes that can steal from the 3 without bastardizing the look, so…puff puff PASS.

  26. They should have just dropped some 3s and altered them a lil bit and called it a day…I love skatin in Jordan IIIs but these shits are horrible

  27. wonder how much these are going to cost let me guess……$110 for a pair of skate shoes bull**** s#!7 disgusting

  28. Stevie should've stayed with DGK/Rbk. The work out lo DGK's are the best skate shoe. And for the guy above saying he left DGK, no way. That shits his company. As far as the jordan shit goes. They do look hot i gotta admit. but i kow they're gonna coast and arm and a leg. I also heard antwon dixon is on the team.

    "first the fusions…. now this jb is fucking up this year"

    this guy is just as dumb, I suppose he hates all the packages too!!! anyone who is an IDIOT please stop trying to tell everyone else what they should wear, if you like em, cop, if not, dont. but everyone who says jordan is selling out and only nike SB's should be made are all sell outs, nike is viewed as a sell-out in the skating community as a whole.

  30. Nice….remember this is a shoe not to play ball just run skate!!!! the black and red they are hot!!! i would copp def…

  31. Tha all black can get snatched and the cool grey is good for the true skaters, I jus cant wait to see how many men between the ages 40-55 come to my store n get em. JB really needs to slow down… Keep comin with the ideas, jus hold some stuff back for later. Its makin the true Jordan fans sick.

  32. I hate top say it, but if Nike SB wasn't doing so well, JB would have never jumped into skate shoe world. Too bad no skate shoe will do what Nike SB has done. Something for the sneakerheads and something for the skaters, doesn't get any better than that.

  33. so yup they do look like 3's but hey, they better than any jordan line baller shoe ive seen in a long time. why cant they do this for the bball shoes?

  34. copped. he just need a black grey and cement print og colorway and its a done deal.

    stop hating on new ideas, some are garbage, but these are pretty deso

  35. Man, this whole thang is gettin rediculous. Skateboarding is getting to popular. No offense to JB but come on now. A skateboarding shoe? As if skatebaording wasn't mainstream enough, now kids are finna buy these up. Why do people gotta try and make paper off everything. Skateboarding is being way to exploited these days. People who don't skateboard but where skateboard gear is just like white kids who wear FUBU. IF YOU DON'T SKATE YOU CAN'T RELATE!

  36. WTF..jordan is a basketball sneaker brand!

    Not skateboarding! like retros are of course the best then they got the .5's to imitate retros….n the team editions…SKATE BOARD J's is a big NO

  37. Just another corporation trying to cash in on this whole skateboaring craze, its getting ridiculous now.

    Jb was already corny with its wack ass retroes, now this?

  38. They are going to ruin the skate shoe game!!! Skates shoes are 39-79 dollars on average. JB goin to have a 150 dollar shoe and skate shoes are going to be exspensive

  39. Stevie Williams skates for lame-ass RBK (Reebok), not Nike.

  40. Imma skater and Im happy that theres finally a hot shoe on the market thats a skate shoe. Theres nothing wrong with DC's but when you can skate in Jordans. Then why not? And just because you wear these shoes doesnt mean youre a sellout. Because majority of yall probably cant skate anyway.

  41. hey im daryl from indonesia

    think jordan retros more better than jordan flipside,jordan brands should make a skate shoes from jordan retros….like jordan 1 turns into jordan skate brand,with zoom air or air system on it…

  42. It dont matter about the clothes and shoes it's the person wearing them!!, Why do you kids get so caught up on skating, skating is a real underground lifestyle, go do your homework and stop this nonsense, shoes arent that important knowledge is!!!!.

  43. There is a rare minority of white people, who skate or ride bmx and also wear jordans… I happen to be one of them…

    Right now when I ride I wear some SBs or any jordans that are flat bottomed… so this is a pretty cool idea.

    It would be cool to see some SB/AJ fusions kind of like what they are doing with the AF/AJ

    and I highly doubt these will be very expensive, maybe 80$s at the most…

  44. holy fuck if anyone thinks these are fucking skateboarding shoes or are ever going to make it into the skateboarding market is a fucking retard. i will personally hunt you down and kill your family pet.

  45. I skate and I don't care who makes what..if they feelin good then that's where im at…and u not sellout if you rock these joints shit they have all sorts of other corny schemes to promote sb…like the fuckin nigga turtles…nahmean…these aren't bad but I would have expected him just to manipulate the 1's since their the closest to skate imo…but fuck it I fux with'em…..

  46. SE MIRAN COMO MIERDA SI MIRARON EL PINCHE PERRO CULERO QUE SALIO EN CODI BANKS TODO CAGADO CON MIERDA TOCANDO EL PINCHE PIANO

  47. give me a break. these really are cutting edge skateboard shoes with their thick outsole and padded tongue. sad to say most skateboarders will probably not fall for this stupid bullshit and stick to real core companies. this is the bullshit that ruins skateboarding. support real companies not this fucking shit.

  48. hype. jb is just running out of ideas fast! how about some retro+ laney 5's?! or, the actualt olympic 6's to be retroed in the blue n white colorway. i would deeply appreciate that!

    also (black) white accent colorway retro 13's wouldnt hurt either?

  49. aye yall never heard of fashion for black people that skate this is that deal j makin skate shoe will bring more black skaters so we can take the game over

  51. hey fuck this ive never been a fan of nike but this is crazy. i seriously doubt im ever gonna see someone shred in these shoes. just the kids with the world industry decks trying to kickflip at the bottom of ramps

  52. Ok so…who agrees tht the only jordan shoe that should be considered a skate shoe is the jordan 1 the ones that look like nike dunks…

  53. wow, they started off wrong already. thick shoes do not cut it anymore, vulcanized is where it's at now. converse will do much better than jordan. i'll give it a year or so before the whole program goes under.

  54. i think this is the worst idea ever!!!

    i hate how companies like jordan think they can make skate shoes just cause they feel like it…its just for money and business it has nothing to do with jordan taking an interest in what we do as skaters…stay away from skating!!!posers are gay

  55. this is the reason I stop skating it has been raped so many times and now it is just t be cool and be a little preppi trendy rebel,skating is dead to me ,the media and the corpos who want want to make a couple more bucks have its blood on there hands

  56. What the fuck is going on here….stick to basketball breh stay out of skateboarding…Your doing the most now

  57. Whoever crushed these kicks is an idiot…… JB can put out shoes in any type of sport and kill it. if you don't have a pair keep the bullshit to yourself. and if you do have a pair they better be the murdered out black ones….. cause they no joke

  58. dude i hate this…why are corporations trying to cash in on what we do…its sucks enough being hated on by society but now they want to hate us and wear shit that belongs to us that just sucks…people resent skaters and call us misfits but yet they still wear all our clothes and shit that we made up with our misfit brains and skills…dude skaters are the best and we gotta stick to core companies man!!! VANS FOREVER…LAKAI OR DIE lol

  59. I just bout these high school red and black flipsyde jordans man is these things hot i got so many comments from people and i bout them yesterday and i never new they had real swade on them
